So after reinstalling windows (bc something in the process to get it to work really f**** up my pc) it says "SPF Init OK" even without installing any drivers or the device showing up as unknown in the Device Manager. But it only shows Aida Informations for a few seconds on my Samsung Device and then turns back to the screen where it says that i can switch to mini-monitor-mode with the frame manager software (which i'm unable to install because there is no working version for win10)

I even tried opening aida64 in admin-mode

To all users of SPFs: I found the way how to control SPF brightness. I found the way how to switch back to storage mode after AIDA exit (however developer already knew it). I send this to developer

Would be great to add it next to the jpg 0-99 field ^^

Try to lower the compression setting even more, and see if it helps. As for the LibUsb drivers: you can only install them when the SPF device is in mini-monitor mode. Try to remove the Samsung drive

Yes, we've heard about such issues when using SPF devices with Win10, but so far we haven't found a resolution :(

i somehow got it to work for me. since aida tried to switch the frame to mini monitor mode there was a small time window, where the frame showed up as mini monitor in my device manager. and i was fast enough to quickly click on it and install your spf driver troughout the device manager

Maybe that's the trick then. To be super quick :) Great job!

I've been using a Samsung SPF-107H for a few years but on my spare PC which I don't use that often. Last week, I moved it to my main PC and set it up. It works great except that at random times, it switches from mini monitor to mass storage mode and I have to turn it off and back on again to get it working.

When it does this, 2 new entries appear in device manage under disc drives and I lose the libusb-win32 devices entry.

I'm afraid Samsung SPF devices are not 100% stable.  Overheating and firmware getting mixed up seem to plague them quite frequently :( These days we'd recommend using Beadapanel instead of Samsung SPF.

Yes, I have noticed that the my Samsung SPF drops off and comes back quite regularly now.  I have noticed that it appears to stay longer if I drop the screen brightness.  I guess this might be related to temperature.

Is there any way you can adjust the LCD screen brightness from within AIDA?  It seems to revert back to 130 after power cycle.

AFAIK there's no software based method to adjust the brightness of Samsung photo frames :(

Thanks for feeding back. 

I have more details, and what looks like a cure for me!  Details posted here in case anyone else has similar issues.

 

Problem:

I was looking for clues as to why the Samsung LCD panel would stop working.

 

Background:

All my devices (keyboard, mouse, headphones, oculus rift & sensors, monitor usb hub and powered external hub, G920 etc.) were distributed evenly between the "Intel" and "ASMedia" USB controllers.

Since using new headphones I could regularly hear disconnect / reconnect windows sounds.

Looking for clues I was watching device manager and observed both the Samsung LCD and Oculus rift sensors were dropping out. 

 

My process: 

After "random" trying the LCD in different ports I unplugged everything and went through a process of elimination to work out which devices (and hubs) worked best on each port.  This took around two hours!

 

My results:

1) Keyboard & mouse, USB 2.0 ports.  This wasn't a configuration change but is worth keeping in mind.

2) Samsung LCD stopped dropping off when it was plugged directly onto the "Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller".  

3) USB headphones would not detect in windows if they were plugged into the adjacent port to the LCD.

4) Oculus rift sensors were repeatedly disconnecting and reconnecting when plugged into ASMedia controller(s) and issues reported by oculus software.  Move to "Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller" and no more issues reported.

5) System has been stable since moving all devices onto the "Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller".

6) Rift sensors plugged into powered usb 3.0 hub (Anker)

7) Monitor plugged into powered usb 3.0

8) Headphones & Game controller plugged into monitor (don't judge, it's the most accessible cable point!)

9) G920 & Oculus rift direct connect to rear ports on motherboard)

 

I hope that helps anyone else out there!

I too have been using Samsung SPF (87H) in Windows 10 for years; without any realy problems I might add.

I don't have it running every day, so I don't know when it stopped working, but it's a bit odd...

When I start the display, it says "PC connected via USB cable".
I then select "Mini Monitor"; this always takes a few seconds; but while I can see in the Device Manager, that your "libusb-win32" driver is being loaded, it suddenly gets unloaded with a message displayed on the SPF: "Your photo frame must be connected tot he PC"

I've already tried a different USB cable and several USB ports (back or front); as it was working at least a few weeks ago: could a Win-Upd have "broken" the driver?

I don't even have the latest version; only an up2date 1909...

Does this driver work for you? What's your Win10 version? Latest updates installed?

Thanks for any infos!

We've tested the Samsung SPF module of AIDA64 using our SPF-75H test device, under Windows 10 64-bit Version 1909, with the libusb driver that we supply, and it works flawlessly.

Please right-click on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> System Debug --> USB Dump. Copy-paste the full results into this topic, or attach the results as a TXT file to your post. You may need to enable status bar in AIDA64 / main menu / View first.

In the USB Dump we will find the USB device ID of your device.  Then we can enable SPF support as a test, in order to check if it shares protocol with the already supported SPF devices or not.

Dear Aida64, I have a Sumsung DPF 85M,can you update Samsung SPF LibUsb driver ? Thank you very much!

I also have Samsung SPF (87H), it drops out every few hours... basicly the display just freezes, and stays that way.

Could freeze after 1 hour , could freeze after 8 hours.. I just stopped using it.

I tried different usb ports and different usb drivers, same thing

      hi all, newbie here! this is my first post so i hope it has landed in the correct place..  be gentle!

      i have installed the 'simple' version of a64, is it possible to run multiple instances of the sensor panel? i have the sensor panel running in a 5 inch screen located inside my case but have a room change planned which will put the case high on a shelf out of my eye sight so i would like a second display for stats placed under my main monitor. i plan to use a larger screen say a 10.1 'ultrawide (if thats the correct term) as i like the extra real-estate. what are my options?
      on a similar topic, is it possible to create an 'unpublished' senor panel before removing the currently used panel? or would i have to save the current panel to file or something then start a new panel?
      also can anyone point me to gauge resources, ie pre made gauges? or an easy to understand tutorial for how to diy them? total novice here, but can follow an idiots guide!

      i have included the final evolution of my first attempt using the provided gauges etc, it took me ages to get rid of the green dials.. i finally gave up trying to figure it out in a64 so i just changed the hue on the 5inch monitor lol. really hoping to learn the skills to create something like i have seen on here.. some really nice work on the share your panel thread, some of those must have taken ages!!! impressive. 
      any advice greatly received, but remember your talking to an a64 absolute novice!!
      Thanks folks.

      Hey guys!
      Im hoping for some input regarding my question. I saw, AIDA64 is supporting a lot of different displays and interfaces. Now which one to choose? Heres some more input from me about what im looking for:
      [Mandatory] 5-8 inch LCD display [Mandatory] only USB powered [Mandatory] black frame design to match my case, if possible [Optional] A flat, not too thick one [Optional] small bezels if possible [Optional] No buttons neccessary, i want to place it inside of my case. [Optional] an internal USB connector to directly connect it to the motherboard At the moment im using some Aquacomputer Vision OLEDs which are working fine. But i can already see some burn in and they are pretty small. Since theres no LCD coming from Aquacomputer anytime soon, im thinking about using AIDA64 to get my data on screen. I have 3 of those OLED on each of the drive bay covers, this is more or less the space i have available
      I have attached a screenshot of the system with the OLEDs and their current placement for you to visualize.
       
      Thank you for your suggestions!

      Hey there,
      Installed the new card but i do not see all the sensors, like i did on my 2080 ti.
      Also, when the GPU is idle (low clock) the GPU Clock field on my sensor panel and LCD appear and disappear sometime. Also,
      app takes way longer to load.
      If any logs are needed just let me know.
      Cheers!

      Hey, new to Aida64 so be gentle,
      I have 2 Raspberry Pi 7" touchscreen display. One has a pi connected to it and the other is just the panel. The panel has just a usb port and a micro usb port. What's the easiest way to get this up and running as an external monitor? I've been running ModBros but I'm looking for something more customizable. 
       
      Also, other then the one forum post, is there anywhere to get templets to get a start from and build off of that?
